LeBear Resort: The Ultimate Year-Round Escape​

LeBear Luxury Resort is a one-of-a-kind luxury residential club in Glen Arbor, Michigan. Eleven of the fourteen luxury residences are fractionally-owned and available for private or rental use year-round. LeBear is affiliated with The Registry Collection®, an upscale “Fractional Exchange Club” that offers luxury vacation opportunities with top-tier resorts around the world.

Each residence at LeBear is over 2,500 square feet and can accommodate up to eight people. 

They each include two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, a full-size gourmet kitchen, and a large private deck with expansive views of Lake Michigan. The luxurious master bathroom is equipped with heated slate floors, a steam shower, and jetted tub. The majority of LeBear’s residences were completely remodeled in 2019 to include the highest quality of amenities, including HDR televisions, Bose audio systems, and elegant furnishings that reflect the “Up North” lifestyle.


As one of the finest resorts in Michigan, LeBear is uncompromising in the quality of its amenities. The spectacular outdoor swimming pool is perfect for the whole family – it includes a heated deck, whirlpool, and a striking backdrop of Lake Michigan. The glass conservatory indoor pool and whirlpool acts as a toasty haven on snowy days. A bonfire is prepared on the private beach for each night during the warm season – s’mores ingredients are provided! For those who wish to venture out on the calm lake waters, kayaks and paddleboards are available at no additional cost. LeBear also offers a fitness room, sauna, complimentary Wi-Fi, billiards, and massage room for owners and guests.


LeBear’s facilities contain Blu, an award-winning restaurant with eclectic cuisine from the freshest local ingredients, as well as a premier wine program. Located on the south end of the resort, Blu’s glass-walled dining room provides panoramic views of stunning sunsets, Sleeping Bear Dunes, and the Manitou Islands.
